Art... art and more art!

Great museum located in Paris, France, has a valuable selection of works of art. The main work of this museum is the Monalisa by Leonardo Da Vinci. Which is located in a room that was quite full with tourists taking pictures of it. I admit that was a little disappointing to enter the room and see a painting so famous and important in the history of art as a framework that small. Despite this disappointment, it was very interesting to get in contact with a female representation so mysterious.
In addition to the Mona Lisa in the Louvre, I could be in contact with other works of great value in history, as the statue of Venus de Milo, who drew my attention more than the Monalisa. The task of carving marble is fantastic and very well done. Showing the delicacy that the artist had to create it.
Other rooms of the Louvre, have frames that are not so popular but have a great expression of emotions and techniques from the past. In the corridors / lobbies we collide with classes of students who are doing tours in the museum and learn more about the history of art, as well as artists making reproductions of paintings on display.
Besides the works of art, the structure of the Louvre is something that draws a lot of attention, with its pyramids structures iron / steel and glass. These are some of the roof of the museum halls, making the light of day interfere with the room lighting.
Thus, an afternoon at the Louvre I added value to the knowledge of art history, techniques and artistic avant-garde. It also made me think about learning art since little kids, having more contact with a piece of culture that goes back to medieval times. But unfortunately, a single afternoon in the Louvre is not enough to meet such a huge museum, which has numerous halls with works from various eras and styles.
